Auburn Fares Well During Womens NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships


Auburn University’s head Swimming & Diving Coach Brett Hawke was proud of his women’s team in their 34th appearance at the 2013 NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships in Indianapolis.  Nineteen Auburn swimmers earned All-American honors during the meet, and the Tigers placed 13th overall with Olivia Scott winning an NCAA title in the 100-yard butterfly.  “These ladies have worked so hard all year, and I’m extremely proud of all of them, especially our seniors,” Hawke said, via Brandon Marcello,  “I’m even more proud of how well our team bonded together this year, worked through some adversity, and kept a positive, confident attitude the whole season. We achieved a lot this year and this week. It’s always a positive when you can have an NCAA Champion in an event. But we know we are capable of achieving a lot more.”  The two time Olympian became head coach of the Tigers in 2009, and has won three NCAA Team Championships during his tenure.

The Men’s NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships will begin this Thursday, March 28th, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
